Almost everyone when it comes to treating hair issues and improving the hair health is used to buy cosmetic products.
But these products and treatments are full of chemicals and expensive, and the results they provide are only temporary. Don’t use artificial products. Use one simple and safe ingredient that everyone has in the home – salt.
Using salt for the hair is amazing because it improves the health of the hair, it stimulates hair growth and it mends some scalp issues. And what is more, it removes the dead skin cells by exfoliating the skin, it moisturizes the skin, and it eliminates dandruff and removes the excess oil from the hair.
Benefits of using salt for hair
Prevents excess of oil
If you have greasy and oily hair, then the salt is the right solution for you because salt controls the excessively active sebaceous glands on the scalps, which produce too much oil. You need to add two or three tablespoons into the shampoo you usually use and wash your hair with it and you will see results after the first few treatments.
Dandruff is a layer which is formed on the scalp from small pieces of dead skin cells and if you start using salt for your hair, the circulation will be stimulated and the existing dandruff flakes will be eliminated. The scalp is protected by the salt from fungal growth, and all you should do is divide your hair into sections, sprinkle one or two teaspoons of salt on your scalp and after that, you need to massage it with wet fingers for around ten minutes and wash it as usual.
Promotes hair growth
Salt is beneficial for hair growth because it prevents and stops hair loss and it stimulates the growth of new hair. What you need to do is wash your hair as usual and then massage your wet scalp with sea salt for ten to fifteen minutes and then wash your hair again. You need to repeat this procedure twice a week for two months.
Choosing the right salt for hair health
Salt is divided into various types, but when it comes to the hair health, you need to choose the proper type. You need to know that every salt contains sodium chloride (NaCl) and there are four types of salt: stone salt which is from salt quarries, extracted salt from salted solutions, sea salt (the most useful one is the Dead Sea salt) and sedimentary, rock salt from the bottom of lakes with high salinity.
The best choice for your hair is the sea salt because it is the most beneficial one and it strengthens the hair follicle and it nourishes the scalp. And if we want to treat hair loss, the best choice is the use of the iodized table salt.
